CUTAJAR, Joseph -
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Joseph Cutajar on Saturday, April 11, 2020 at 4:24am. He passed away peacefully at 88 years old, surrounded by his loved ones.

Joseph Cutajar was born on February 3, 1932 in Birżebbuġa, Malta and moved to Canada when he was 18 years old. He first landed in British Columbia and worked on the Vancouver Railroad before going back to Malta to marry his love, Filippa (Pina) Polidano, on February 14, 1954. They moved to Toronto where he started his career in welding and together they raised their two children, Peter and Mary. Joseph had a passion for fishing and hunting, and was almost always found in his garden or feeding his birds.

Joseph was an incredibly proud and dedicated husband, father and Nannu. He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Pina; two children, Peter and Mary (Angelo Tomassi); grandchildren, Roberto (Lisa), Paolo, and Marisa; and great-grandchildren, Alessandro and Luca. He is also missed by his brothers and sister, extended family and friends.

There will be a private service held for the immediate family in honor of Joseph. The family will arrange for a public mass in the future to celebrate his life.

Please consider submitting a donation to Dorothy Ley Hospice or to the Princess Margaret Foundation in his memory. Online condolences at

Dear Cutajar & Tomassi Families,
"We were so saddened to hear about Uncle Joe passing. We hope and pray that your families will have strength during this time of loss. You so passionately took care of him and showed him strength, dignity and compassion."
I have so many fond memories of Uncle Joe that come to mind. When I think of Uncle Joe, I remember seeing him in the garden, feeding the rabbits and the birds and visiting us at my dads. I will always remember the words of wisdom and advice he shared with me as I was growing up.
Love your niece, Natalie, Manny, Sienna & Alexa Knight
